Project Description

Students where asked to do a project in there first term of school, There

were a couple of options to choose from, like for example you could do a

“sports event” a “fashion show”. Our groups choose to plan a six-

destination international music tour. Since these days people are engage

and aware of multicultural music genres the group/team though that we had

to pick music groups that will fit for a wider audiences.

Since music has been inspiration and an integral part of every culture.

Music informs us about our past and presents, but also foreshadows our

future. It’s a creative outlet for self-expression that involves/integrates

all disciplines and has the power to inspire and people/individuals or

society’s. Music is one aspect of cross-cultural and cross-generational

communication.

Artic Music Corp, approached our company and wanted us to represent them as

there clients, and creating/developing a music tour across Europe. And they

asked us to create it so that if was not only “pop” music but alternatives

so that fans of Hiphop/Rap, Punk, Heavy metal and rock would like to come

and enjoy this.

The purpose of this project, Artic Music is to explore if music from

Scandinavia, Sweden, Denmark, Norway, Finland and Iceland band that are

big and popular in there home countries can be big in the rest of Europe.

Which could be an interesting thing to found out, because man

bands in

Great Britain have failed to make it big in America for some strange

reason?

And the reason for this is because Artic Music Corp which is a small but up

and coming record/marketing company wants to open a couple of new offices

across Europe and launch a big marketing plan, marketing Bands from

Scandinavian countries and bands/groups that are singed to the record

company Artic music Corp.

However the goal with this scheme is to gain fans and show that other

countries that make good music, and compete on the world music map. The way

it looks now is on billboards is that the majority of music is created in

America or in the UK. Sweden is already know for making good music and

Finland is starting to making a name for it self. Iceland has Bjrk who is

quiet reputable and famous within the music industry. But Norway and

Denmark have failed to make any noise around the rest of the Europe.

Although there is a big risk with creating and developing a project and

tour like this. Where should the events be held, is the venue to big, to

small can it measure with the expectations from the ticket sales. If its

outdoors, what if it is bad weather and the concert have to be cancelled

and that date/city, how can we compensate the purchase. And the biggest

risk of all is if the ticket sales fail to reach the sales target and the

venues are not full. What if the marketing doesn’t reach out to every one

that we want to reach out to, how will that affect our ticket sales?

The alternatives are to do a pre marketing plan and see if there are any

interests for a tour like this and research into venues that will fit our

needs and requirements.
